WASHINGTON, DC — Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor released the following statement regarding the Senate’s confirmation of Iowa Governor Terry Branstad for Ambassador to China.

“We congratulate Ambassador Branstad on his confirmation and look forward to a great champion for ethanol to serve in this role. This will hopefully be an important first step to re-opening the Chinese marketplace to American ethanol and distiller’s grains (DDGs).

“We thank Ambassador Branstad for his tireless work on behalf of America’s farmers and the biofuels industry in his capacity as governor of Iowa and we are excited to have a trusted ally in this important new role.”
